The United Nations recognizes 180 currencies in the world as legal tender. But while currencies such as the US dollar and the euro are popular and widely used, they do not hold the highest values, and they are not the strongest currencies. When we talk about the , this refers to the relative purchasing power of a national currency when it is traded for products or against other currencies.

That is, currency strength is measured by the number of services and goods purchased and the sum of foreign currency received in exchange for one unit of the national currency. To determine the strength of a currency or if it is the most valuable currency in the world or the most expensive currency, we need to consider the interaction of a variety of local and international factors. This includes the supply and demand in the forex markets, inflation, growth in the domestic economy
